We apologize for the downtime today and it sadly interrupting the donor appreciation freeleech.
In terms of why the site and tracker were down, we had a drive fail. This is usually a non issue thanks to RAID. We submitted a ticket to get the bad HDD replaced, but our host's support team decided not to tell us when to expect our server to be shut off to do the replacement. After they replaced the drive, we had issues with the server not booting and received similar poor support yet again. Thankfully, the RAID array is once again healthy and all data is in tact!
The freeleech has been extended an extra day! The Beathau5 community and its users are the best around, we couldn't let downtime take away your site wide freeleech. The new freeleech end time is December 05 0000 UTC.
